World Savvy is recruiting volunteers for the 2018 World Savvy Festival! Join this energetic day as a volunteer to help celebrate and center the work of youth in our communities.
Wednesday, May 9 @ University of St. Thomas, Saint Paul
If you are new to World Savvy, here is some more information about our work.
Part pep rally, part global summit, the World Savvy Festival is an annual culminating event for middle and high school students participating in the World Savvy Classrooms program. The day long event brings students from different schools together to share and get feedback on their research and action plans to address global issues that have local impacts. Students also engage with each other through a mini design challenge. Here is a glimpse into a past festival.
This year, the theme for the festival is Breaking Barriers. Students have been researching human trafficking, educational inequities, pollution, teen suicide and mental health, Black Lives Matter, food deserts, domestic violence, renewable energy, and more.
On Festival day, we’re looking for volunteers to help:
- Serve as judges, meeting with groups of students to listen to them present their projects and offer feedback using a rubric. Judges will volunteer from 9:30am- 12:00pm.
- Serve as facilitators, guiding one or more groups of students through a mini Knowledge 2 Action, design thinking workshop. Facilitators will volunteer all day (9:30am-2:30pm) and will judge in the morning.
- Serve as operations volunteers, helping with various logistics throughout the day such as guiding and greeting students, handing out lunch, and registration. Operations will volunteer all day. Also, let us know if you can come early or stay late!
If you are interested in volunteering as an individual or group, please contact Kelsey Larson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fill out the registration form.
This event would not be possible without our volunteers. We hope to see you there!
